Songs for Angsty Princesses

I’m in one of those tragic moods again, likely correlated to the perpetual grey skies and drizzle of an abnormally long Korean rainy season, it’s that time of the month, my life source (aka my iPod) recently broke, Lana del Rey is crooning her sad lullabies of love’s lost guarantee in the background, and I am thousands upon thousands of miles away from my soybean utopia in Middle-America where everything makes plain and good simple sense.

At any rate, every girl needs a proper dose of angst from time to time, so I made this angst-filled mix for all of my tormented princesses out there contemplating the meaning of life, love, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness in the wee hours of the morning. Please step aside, Elliot Smith, these lady singers have got our backs when we’re feeling forlorn, anxious, hoodwinked, mystified, etc. etc. etc.
